Peter Pan at the Olympics

Great to see Peter Pan - and JM Barrie - celebrated during Danny Boyle's amazing Olympics Opening Ceremony, along with some of the other great children's classics!

I for one was moved to tears by the spectacle of all those GOSH nurses and children spilling onto the Olympic field - the NHS is truly the jewel in the crown of Britain, and how wonderful to see it glorified before all the world!

Thank you, Andrew. Couldn't agree more - it was wonderful to see not only GOSH but the NHS celebrated in such a way. And Barrie would have been amazed and delighted to see Peter Pan and his legacy honoured in this global event, and watched by a billion people.

Very few people knew about it and it was the best kept secret here! You can read the patients' reaction here:
